Rep. Eric Swalwell viciously attacked the President of the United States during an interview that aired Wednesday; directly comparing Donald Trump with Osama bin Laden.
“Usama bin Laden did not enter US soil on Sept. 11, but it was widely acknowledged that he was responsible for inspiring the attack on our country,” Swalwell told PBS NewsHour. “And the president, with his words — using the word ‘fight,’ with the speakers that he assembled that day, who called for trial by combat and said we have to take names and kick a–, that is hate speech that inspired and radicalized people to storm the Capitol.”
Swalwell was chosen by Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week to act as an Impeachment Manager when Mr. Trump’s trial commences in the United States Senate.
The House voted to Impeach the President Wednesday, with 10 Republican lawmakers siding with the Democrats.

“Eric Swalwell was reportedly dating a Chinese spy, we now know she was working for the Communist Party of China. Swalwell sits on the House Intel Committee,” he added. “Was there any pillow talk? Is he compromised? Are Joe and Hunter compromised by China? Did she use his computer while he was sleeping?”
